‘Scar’ spotted on Putin’s neck heightens speculation over possible cancer treatment

Intrigue has surfaced over a prominent ‘scar’ that was seen on Vladimir Putin‘s neck, adding to further speculation that the despot may be ill with cancer.

The marking was seen as he clasped a candle at a midnight Orthodox Easter cathedral service in Moscow at the weekend.

It has led to web discussion on whether it represents proof of credible claims initially made by Proekt [Project] media one year ago that Putin has suffered from thyroid cancer.

An investigation by the independent outlet revealed that the dictator is constantly accompanied by a surgeon – Yevgeny Selivanov, of Moscow’s Central Clinical Hospital – specialising in thyroid cancer.

The scar appears as a prominent diagonal line upwards from left to right on his neck. It is clearly seen on footage and pictures posted by the Kremlin from the Easter service, yet is not always visible.

This comes after a possible US intelligence leak claimed that the Russian tyrant was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer.

Ukrainian media outlet Telegram channel Unian described the scar as the shape of the letter ‘Z’ – the swastika-style symbol used by Putin’s invading forces.

‘A strange scar in the shape of the letter ‘Z’ has been noticed on Putin’s neck,’ it posted.

‘The unusual shots were taken on Easter when the dictator visited a cathedral.’

The Ukrainian outlet evidently took the Z-shape idea from political commentator and blogger Denis Kazaksky who posted: ‘What is it with Volodya [Putin]?

‘I think I have figured out where the ‘Z’ came from.’

A comment said: ‘Well, he is supposed to have had thyroid cancer treatment.’

Such a scar was noticed more than two years ago in December 2020 when Russian media outlet Sobesednik pointed to a distinct marking on his neck.

At the time plastic surgeon Amjad Al-Yousef commented: ‘In theory, after intubation [inserting a tube for surgical purposes] such a scar can remain, but this is only in theory.

‘It often happens that not even a scar remains as the skin heals.’

He was speaking before suspicions emerged that Putin suffers from thyroid cancer. Despite the claims, there is no evidence that the Russian tyrant has undergone surgery for removal of the thyroid gland which might involve an incision a few inches long across the front of the neck.

Al-Yousef suggested that instead it was not a scar but a mark in his loose skin – common in an ‘elderly person’.

In 2020 the possible scar did not appear as prominent as seen in recent days and in Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral over the weekend.

Al-Yousef suggested that Putin – then 68 and now 70 – had undergone regular plastic surgery on his face – but this was not undertaken on his neck.

‘No plastic surgery [is] performed on this part of the body,’ he said.

‘Even if we assume that this is some kind of innovation in plastic surgery, then in this case it would have been performed more professionally without such a serious mistake.

‘Here is the classic neck of a 68 year old man with [low skin strength].

‘With age, skin turgor changes and becomes weaker. Vladimir [Putin’s] face is very well-groomed, professional cosmetic care is noticeable.

‘And when we see the perfect face, we naturally begin to pay attention to the skin of the neck.

‘Unfortunately, there are no such effective professional treatments for the neck.

‘While putting a shirt and a tie on, the throat is squeezed, the skin gathers and turns into such a fold.’

The Proekt investigative report revealed that one medic Dr Alexey Shcheglov ‘relentlessly’ followed Putin and made 59 trips encompassing 282 days to his side.

Shcheglov was seen as a medic ‘who, among other things, can be the first to detect problems with the thyroid gland, including oncological ones’.

Putin was also under the attention of an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist Dr Igor Esakov who made 38 trips to Putin, covering 152 days.

Cancer surgeon Dr Selivanov also made 35 trips spanning 166 days, said the report. His expertise is ‘peculiarities of diagnostics and surgical treatment of elderly and senile patients with thyroid cancer’.

Multiple other medics were revealed as caring for the Russian president.

Separate claims have suggested Putin suffers from abdominal cancer.

On Telegram channel – General SVR – regularly claims that the Kremlin warmonger suffers ’bouts of coughing, dizziness, sleep disturbances, abdominal pain [and] constant nausea’ as well as ‘the manifestation of symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and schizoaffective disorder’, it has alleged.

One version is that he has been treated with steroids, leading to a bloated look around the face and neck.

Symptoms of thyroid cancer include the appearance of a thick nodule in the thyroid area; hoarseness of voice; difficulty swallowing; pain in the neck and throat; enlarged lymph nodes in the neck; a dry cough, scratchy or scratchy feeling in the throat or behind the sternum.

The Kremlin has denied Putin suffers from health problems.
